XPO Logistics Announces Public Filing of Form 10 Registration Statement for Planned Spin-Off of GXO Logistics
Press Release | Greenwich, Conn. | June 9, 2021
– Raises full year 2021 guidance for adjusted EBITDA
– Provides 2022 guidance for GXO, including year-over-year adjusted EBITDA growth of 14% to 20%
– Targets third quarter 2021 completion of spin-off
– Announces Investor Days in New York and London
XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of supply chain solutions, today announced the filing of a public Form 10 registration statement for GXO Logistics with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
